  • Enkay Bladders

    Hi all, I ordered a half dozen "Title replacement bladder"s from Forza and what I received was 6 enkay bladders. Can I assume they are the same, ish? The bladder I ordered direct from title actually had the brand name Title on the bladder.. I've searched enkay on the forum and found a few results and nobody seems to have anything bad to say about enkay, unless I missed something.

    One thing I'll say about them is that they have a very short, nipple? Looks to be about the same thickness of the average bag. I don't expect any real problems when installing them though.


    Thank ya'

    They are the same. Enkay is perhaps the largest manufacturer of latex products in the world. Ball and speed bag bladders are just a small part of their business

      Thank you, Dutchman. I've already installed the small into my little heritage bag.

        Not too long ago, I ordered 3 bladders (xs, sm, lg) from Title. I got three orange
        Enkay bladders.

        All still holding air well & most definitely improved the rebound speed of my bags...I even replaced my double-end bag with their speed bag bladder! 🙂

          Thanks Joman, I'm glad to hear that, as I proceed to replace some of the stock bladders from some of my bags.

              Well considering that Title is selling the Enkay #5 bladder as a large, (that fits the Title "big blue" bag) I'd say that a #4 would be a medium

                And the enkay #1 is an XS for those lil 4-7 baguettes. I've swapped a few stock bladders in 5-8 bags for an xs enkay for a little extra zip although sometimes they burst, but that's rare - but for a second you feel reeaally strong when a bladder bursts while you're hitting.

                I will also install a larger heavier bladder inside a small bag that doesn't pack enough weight on it's own. There is no law that I'm aware of that tells you that you can't install a #2 in a 6-9.. That said you wouldn't throw an xs1 in a 7-10.

                  Like some of the rest of you I prefer Enkay bladders they hold air well and in my experience improve the rebound in all the bags I put them in

                    Yes, they are the same and good bladders...with small nipples! Be sure to use some rubber cement to hold it in place when installing, it prevents the nipple from getting lost in the bag. It has happened to me & it’s a pain to fix.

                      I prefer long nipples, wish Enkay had them. The old Everlast plastic bladders, although they had quality control issues, had nipples so long that you cut them after pulling them through. Made bladder change easy.

                        The more current Everlast bladders have the snap in valves, but they don't offer them in the size that the majority of my bags use. They have/had one that fit according to the packaging fit the 4208, which is roughly the same size as the 4207. Got one for one of mine, but then Big 5 stopped selling bladders.

                          Has anyone tested these as „new“ advertised title advanced speedbag bladders?

                          I do also only know the „normal“ enkay bladders they provide.

                            Not yet, although I use a Title butyl DEB bladder in my Reach bag with no complaints. These appear to have longer nipples on them compared to the Enkay bladders

                              Yes, the nipple seems to be longer and to me on the pictures it looks like they have a slightly different shape compared to the enkay. Curious if this takes effect on the bags rebound.
